Quick ?: More Chipset Voltage = Higher HTT?
Just wondering, if I'm trying to find the max HTT for my chip/board, are there any voltage settings that allow for higher HTT? Does higher CPU core clock have any effect on max attainable HTT?
Basically I'm looking to max out my system, the BIOS limit is 280 HTT (lame) and I've had no problems running at 267 HTT with various settings, and I've never had to raise the chipset voltage
But if I try to boot at 5x280 with RAM at 133, all stock voltages, 3x LDT, it hangs at DMI Pool Data or maybe gets as far as XP load screen then craps out. What can I do to squeeze out that last 13 mhz HTT?
Thanks for any input!

maybe you should give more details about your mobo and such.
well it was more of a general-case question, but I do appreciate your response and any help you can offer, so here's my system:
Shuttle SN95G5 (NF3 Ultra) PCB v1.3, fan at "medium" ~2500rpm
939 3000+ @ 267x9 (2400mhz) 1.6vcore (BIOS reports 1.62, software reports 1.552)
2x512 Corsair Value CAS 2.5 PC3200 @ 133/200 (~172)
Maxtor 80 gig / 2 meg
BBA 9700 Pro
Pioneer Slot load 16x DVD
IM sure some will help but i would say you are nearing the max of you your mobo or cpu maybe(1.6 vcore is starting to get high for a winnie at that speed so it leads me to think that maybe its near its max). What power supply do you have?
HTT doesnt offer ANY performance gain at all. i can run 450 htt on my mobo with ram at 237, and i get zero benefit. more chipset voltage did not help this either.
Dell Studio XPS16... no desktop
yes i have AIM, yes you can send me a message. EvilSpork3 i dare you.
As spork said, find your highest ram speed.... HTT wont offer you any gains.
Just keep HTT x HTT multi under 1200, ad then it shouldnt be holding you back.
I guess it works like this:
If you want to overclock your HT bus speed, you'd need higher chipset voltage, to make it stable. But the htt only depends on the capability of the pll (clock generator). I guess all you could do is cool this chip, to make higher HTTs stable.
But like said above, higher HTT doesn't make up for a performance increase.
Higher HT does, but almost unnotable..
